As we sail through January, it is once again almost time for Global Game Jam (GGJ). I (Matt) jammed it out in Melbourne the last two years and had a load of fun each time, creating music and SFX for any game that came my way.

In fact, the game my team made during GGJ 2019, Terrarium, ended up on the SZS 2019 ShowreelYou can read more about my experience at GGJ 2019 here, and 2018's jam in this post.

This year, unfortunately, Sub-Zero Sound won't be able to attend. Because of this, we want to instead help someone else who is interested in attending GGJ 2020, but may not be able to afford it or may not have considered it.

We have donated a pass for anyone interested in jamming and giving game audio a crack! If you're interested in game audio but have no titles under your belt, or cannot afford a ticket, please fill in your details in the Google Form here before January 19th for a chance of a free ticket!

Melbourne's GGJ is an incredibly welcoming space and makes for a wholesome weekend. Diverse applicants are encouraged to apply!
